Virtual Pitch Deck
I HAVE A DREAM HOME's mission is to provide mortgages to individuals and families living in urban and rural communities across America. We intend to expand the financial market and increase the homeownership rate using its proprietary mortgage lending platform.
According to Freddie Mac 2023 statistics there are over 13 million mortgage ready homebuyers going underserved in urban and rural communities across America. Unfortunately, these communities have limited or no access to capital. Therefore, people living in these communities have been unable to achieve the American dream of homeownership.
Despite fair lending laws, people living in low-income communities have been disproportionately denied access to affordable home loans. Discrimination and bias continue to plague the mortgage industry. The big banks have exited the mortgage business and low-income communities in favor of higher yield investments.
I HAVE A DREAM HOME aim is to rectify this through our proprietary mortgage platform and technology-enabled lending process. We will offer mortgage opportunities to qualified borrowers that have been underserved.
Freddie Mac statistics show that there is a significant opportunity to increase homeownership rates in urban and rural America which will help stabilize these communities.
Total Addressable Market is $312 Billion
We have established there are over 13 million Mortgage Ready Homebuyers (MRHBs) going underserved in urban and rural communities across America. I HAVE A DREAM HOME goal is to gain a ten percent (10%) market share of the Total Addressable Market (TAM).
The National Association of Realtors (NAR) reported that the Median Household Income (MHI) of first-time homebuyers is $80,000, and the Median Home Price Purchased (MHPP) is $240,000.
The Urban Institute (UI) reported nearly 20 million renter-households in America have the credit and income to qualify for a mortgage loan but haven't purchased a home yet. These potential homebuyers are concentrated in urban and rural areas, representing another significant opportunity.
By eliminating discrimination and bias and other barriers imposed by traditional banks and lending institutions, I HAVE A DREAM HOME methodology will meet the needs of these citizens living in America’s underserved communities.
Problem 1: Homeownership – Access to Credit
The wealth gap continues to grow; although homeownership is the single greatest asset for many individuals and families today, access to homebuying capital remains a key front-line issue.
A large mortgage-ready population remains underserved by financial institutions. These underserved communities represent both the future of this country and a major business opportunity; therefore, to ensure the American Dream of homeownership remains within reach, an unbiased pathway must exist for all qualified homebuyers.
America's Problem – Racial Inequality
In September 2020, Citigroup released a GPS report that states racial inequality has led to $16 trillion dollars in lost GDP over the last 20 years. Report authors prognosticate that if racial inequity gaps were closed today, the equivalent add to the U.S. economy over the next five years could be $5 trillion of additional GDP.
Raymond J. McGuire, former Vice Chairman of Citigroup stated: “Racial inequality has always had an outsized cost, one that was thought to be paid only by underrepresented groups. What this report underscores is that this tariff is levied on us all, and particularly in the U.S., that cost has a real and tangible impact on our country’s economic output. Now, more than ever, we have a responsibility and an opportunity to confront longstanding societal ills, tally up the economic loss, and as a society, commit to bringing greater equity and prosperity to all.
Solution 1: Homeownership - Access to Credit
Underserved communities represent a missed opportunity for lenders. I HAVE A DREAM HOME has emerged to help those communities waiting in distress for a life-sustaining solution centered around homeownership. Servicing these communities, it could add $1.5 trillion to the GDP annually. We intend to tap into the potential of those communities using our proprietary mortgage lending platform.
We intend to work closely with banks and Government Sponsored Enterprises (GSEs) to help them achieve their Community Reinvestment Act goals and their responsibilities under the Duty to Serve (DTS) rules. Most importantly, we seek to unlock credit access for these underserved communities which will allow the communities to prosper and grow. It will also allow families and individuals living in those communities to achieve the American dream of homeownership and begin the process of building generational wealth.
Solution 2: Building a Bridge to the Future
I HAVE A DREAM HOME agrees with Raymond J. McGuire and Citigroup, that it's time for all of us to tally up the economic loss and commit to bringing greater equity to those communities waiting in distress.
We see ourselves as a catalyst for change and a bridge to the future of homeownership, community renewal, and job creation, in those underserved communities across America.
Go To Market Strategy
Our target market is low-moderate income, first-time, minority, and urban/rural homebuyers, we will focus geographically on diverse urban centers, high-minority cities, and rural counties nationwide. Our product mix includes conventional low-down payment mortgages, first-time buyer programs, and down payment assistance.
Messaging will emphasize customized lending, achievable homeownership, guiding customers through the process, understanding unique situations, and helping underserved communities build financial security.
Strategies involve community partnerships, local advertising, workshops, canvassing, small business outreach, and tailored digital social media marketing. Tactics feature optimized digital campaigns, resonant branding, referral incentives, mortgage processor partners, engaging content, sponsored events, social media influencers, religious organizations, fraternities, sororities, and email nurturing.
This integrated outreach combines grassroots networking with data-driven digital targeting. High-touch local connections and high-tech optimizations will engage the underserved homebuying community across traditional and modern channels.
Our comprehensive approach will promote our mission of expanding access and financial security through affordable homeownership. We will also implement digital marketing campaigns optimized through rigorous A/B/n testing. Factorial experiments reveal 9,600 qualified leads monthly at a 0.5% CTR converting at 1% is optimal.
Our #1 customer acquisition strategy is establishing referral partnerships with influential organizations, including but not limited to religious organizations, fraternities, and sororities. Our econometric models show this yields the highest ROI. We will offer a calibrated incentive structure to achieve 1.5-2x which is above the typical 0.3-1% conversion rate. To expand exposure, we will have dedicated staff attend key community events.
In the shifting landscape of mortgage lending, the departure of major national lenders has created a gap in the marketplace that remains underserved by smaller players. Our startup mortgage company is uniquely positioned to address this gap and effectively serve the underserved communities in urban and rural America.
We aim to leverage technology, provide faster approvals and closings, build strong relationships, and become a trusted partner in our target communities. By offering competitive rates and fee structures through lower overhead and employing innovative marketing strategies, we can cater to the specific needs of our customers.
We are resolute in our mission to dismantle the discriminatory and biased lending practices that have unjustly left 13 million mortgage-ready homebuyers underserved. We value low to moderate income earners as hardworking partners, recognizing their immense potential. In 2020, the Homeownership Council of America issued a report highlighting the vast untapped loan volume potential within the underserved communities. The total Market Value (TMV) of underserved mortgage-ready homebuyers stands at an impressive $3.12 trillion. Our ambition is to secure a 10% market share within 10 years equating to $312 billion.
We have tailored our products and services specifically to serve these underserved homebuyers, appealing to those who seek convenient, and user-friendly mortgage solutions. In every phase of this endeavor, we champion accessibility and equality in homeownership.

Year 1 Financial Analysis:
In Year 1, we anticipate a robust start with 432 loans, ranging from $150,000 to $300,000, or an average of $225,000. The initial three months are strategically dedicated to staff recruitment, system development, state registrations, and lead generation. Progressively, we envision an upswing in operational efficiency and loan closures throughout the year.
Year 1 Staffing:
Our exceptional team, vital for the success of our operation, comprises of a CEO, COO, underwritier, marketing representative, senior office staff member, and an Information Technology specialist.
Year 1 Revenue Projections:
We forecast the closure of 432 loans (0 in months 1-3, and 48 each month thereafter), amounting to $97,200,000 in revenue. This sets the stage for refining our financial projections as we gear up for scaling our operations in the upcoming years.
Disrupt the mortgage lending industry by providing access to capital in underserved communities across America. The lack of access to capital limits financial choices and opportunities for American families. Our goal is to level the playing field. We plan to demonstrate that social consciousness, in for profit business, is not just a good idea, but good for business.
Our company is more than a startup; we are agents of change in the mortgage industry. With innovative technology, a dedicated team, and a clear roadmap, we are ready to serve the underserved communities of America, deliver financial returns to our investors, and expand homeownership access to deserving families.
